She does have her perky moments when she runs up the stairs or wags her stump because she wants to jump on the bed (which she is no longer allowed to do). Taking it one step at a time seems to be all we can do at the moment, sans the ultrasound, is there anything else we can do?
It sounds to me that you're doing all you can for her. Monitoring at home seems to be a wonderful solution for all of you

So take it one step at a time, do your best, and make all your decisions in Franny's best interest and, regardless of the outcome, you will have made the right decision!

How is she doing today? Any better?
